The Mulhouse Building, at the Royal Victoria Hospital, was erected in 1887 as a linen factory for Robert Lindsay & Co. Power loom weaving, bleaching and dyeing were all carried out in the Mulhouse Building until the beginning of the 20th century, at which time the Mulhouse was used mainly as a warehouse for the display of linen goods.

Today, the Mulhouse Building is home to Queen's Medical Library, as well as the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry and part of Queen's Centre for Medical Education.

The Mulhouse is a listed building.
